Earthquake Update #2

As you have probably heard by now, the quakes (after shocks) continue and the damage and death toll is large in the Tohoku region. All missionaries in all missions except Sendai are accounted for. The mission president in Sendai has made contact with the church offices in Tokyo and he says most his missionaries are accounted for and safe. There are still a few they cannot get in contact with. The communication systems are still down. Some Tsunami did reach our mission here, but no damage has been reported. Most of Japan is still on Tsunami alert as aftershocks continue. Our hearts go out to the people up north who are suffering from one the biggest natural disasters of all time here. Our immediate family is safe, including those living in the affected region.

Dear President, our family and friends are very grateful to receive updated information on the situation of the missionaries in Kobe Mission. Our son, Elder MaurĂ­cio serves this area and we were worried because of what we watch on television. We are praying for the welfare of all missionaries, members, and all the Japanese people.
